My first introduction to Christian Science was during the early spring of 1889, at which time I was suffering from a severe attack of rheumatism. I took about three treatments, and as I did not notice any improvement I dismissed the practitioner, and with her all thought of Science. After that I used material remedies, and in the course of time got seemingly well.

About nineteen years later Christian Science was again forcibly brought to my notice. At this time it was recommended to my wife, who had been in very poor health for a number of years, by an aunt who had been wonderfully helped through the study of Science and Health. My wife concluded to try it, as all medical and surgical skill had been exhausted, so she purchased a copy of Science and Health and began its study. Her health improved so rapidly that I became interested to know what there could be in a book that could work such wonders. I therefore started to read, as I had come to the conclusion that if it could help my wife so much, it surely could not hurt me; and if there was any good available, I wanted it. I had not read more than a month or two when I threw away all my medicines,—and I had a lot of them, both at home and at the place where I worked, for while I did not have any so-called serious ailments, I nevertheless had a lot of excuses for taking medicine. This was over five years ago, and I have not used any remedy of a material nature since.
